Heroes Helping Heroes – Monument to Acknowledge Fallen Police/Fire Dogs

Saturday November 3, 2012 marked the first ever Heroes Helping Heroes fundraiser to raise the $100,000 needed to complete and set up the monument, proposed by Council Woman Sheri Capehart, to honor and recognize the 4 legged comrades of the Police and Fire Department.

Council woman Sheri Capehart (seen on the right with the Arlington PD K9 unit)  has always had a passion for Animal Services and when she became a Council Member in 2000 her first project was the Arlington Animal Shelter

When one of Arlington Fire’s ‘Fire Dogs’ (Jason – seen left) had to be put down the handler was distraught.  Capehart made a commitment to have a monument created to acknowledge “our Fire and Police dogs”

In 2009 she proposed the building of a memorial and the idea was immediately embraced.  “It has been a slow process and there was a lot of ground work to be done before fundraising for the project could begin” says Council Woman Capehart.  She is quick to mention that the project is a community affair.

Firefighter Bransford (Arlington FD) and Deputy Chief Lemaux (Arlington PD) volunteered to be “locked in kennels” from noon – midnight to help raise funds for Heroes Helping Heroes Monument.  For a $10 donation people could bail them out and get a picture

Even The infamous “McGruff” was also seen locked in one of the kennels

These, and many other, adorable Felines and Canines patiently (or maybe not so patiently) await adoption.

 

Unlike the Volunteers who could have bail posted (and were released at the end of the day) animals not adopted during the event would have to wait another day in “confinement”.

Hannah the Fire Dog with her handler Jayla Patterson were on hand for photos and “greet”

 

Author Melanie Garrett was at the event from noon – 3pm selling her book, “Under His Helmet”.  The books sold for $18.50 each and 40% of the cost of the books was immediately given to the Arlington Animal Shelter

Golden Paws, was also at the fundraiser selling their hand-made dog/kitty blankets, scarves, and toys.  Money received for items sold during the event went towards the Heroes Helping Heroes Monument.

DON’T LEAVE DOGS IN HOT CARS

Leaving your dog in your car, even with the windows “cracked”, can be extremely dangerous for your pet. It only takes a few minutes for the inside of a car to reach 100°+.

Read The Full Story from Parker County Sheriff’s office HERE

Watch this disturbing Video about the abuse of Hope, The Pug-Mix Puppy.  Truly amazing that she has not withdrawn and lost complete trust in humans.

It’s a happy ending to a sad story:

“Hope”  A new name name for a pup with a new Beginning.  According to @CBSDFW,  the pug mix now has a home with Charlie and Kit Moncrief (well known by Parker County Sherrif Larry Fowler), who “owned the property where the dog was found”

Hope’s story began on Monday July 09 when according to @NBCDFW a Frightened dog with tongue pulled out and snout taped shut was found by a passerby  Concerned Citizens searched for dog, after she ran off two different times, and she was taken to Bowie Drive Animal Hospital

According to an article by Deanna Boyd of StarTelegram Despite previous mistreatment Hope continues to have a  Happy Tail & Happy Heart

According to several articles, the outpouring of support and people stepping forward to offer donations towards Hope’s care and for the reward fund towards information of her abuser.  I, also, HOPE that whoever was responsible for Hope’s mistreatment is brought to justice!!

As we understand, pretty much all of Hope’s medical care has been covered by donations.   However, anyone who has owned a pet knows that there are other expenses involved in there care including food, veterinary, etc .  If you would like to help with these ongoing expenses please check out our Help Hope page via Go Fund Me
